"In a move expected as soon as this month, Japan's Defense Ministry will pick a replacement for its aging squadrons of Vietnam-era F-4 fighters from among three finalists, two American and one European. The order for a new fighter is expected to total 40 to 60 planes valued at an estimated $4 billion. It is one of the world's largest military contracts this year."
MAJIA HERE: So, Japan is willing to spend $4 billion plus on weapons unlikely to ever be utilized in order to enrich the profits of either American or European defense contractors, but is unable to pay for municipal clean-ups of radiation contamination outside of the exclusion zone.
Japan is willing to spend $4 billion plus to build up defenses against economic superpowers such as China but is not willing to protect its own population from the effects of a nuclear meltdown that is going to engulf the nation and destroy its economy.
If Japan's Defense Ministry wanted to protect their nation they would dedicate all of their resources to containing the Fukushima meltdown.
The situation at Fukushima is deteriorating. Tepco's recent reports plus the evidence on the video cam demonstrate this is a fact.
Japan will cease to function as a viable nation when its water tables are contaminated with radionuclides.
Already Japan's food is becoming increasingly contaminated.
The Japanese Defense Ministry needs to wake up in order to address the real security threat to their nation, it is a material and existential threat that is historically unprecedented.
